Child's vaccination data handily available via Kasvuseula service

February 23, 2017

Parents can now follow their tots' vaccinations via the Kasvuseula online service, which provides analytical data on the child's growth. Developed by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, this new service feature is based on reliable data - maintained by the Pharmaceutical Information Centre- on children's vaccinations. Kasvuseula.fi is a user-friendly, online service that provides parents with reliable, analysed data on the growth of their child and any abnormalities. A new vaccination data section has now been added to the service.

The service provides parents with a handy way of recording their children's vaccinations and monitoring the progress of the recommended vaccination programme. Vaccination data is visualised by a clear diagram showing vaccinations under the national vaccination programme and an indicative vaccination schedule. In this way, Kasvuseula serves as a tool which supports and complements Finnish health care.

"With this service, VTT wants to help parents to monitor the growth and development of their children. Users have warmly welcomed the growth data section; I think that providing vaccination data at the same address makes the service even more useful and user friendly," says Kari Kohtamäki, Key Account Manager, who adds that data on over 23,000 children has been added to the service.

"Due to the online information overload on vaccines, we warmly welcomed VTT's proposal to engage in cooperation. Kasvuseula is a natural place from which to provide parents with easily understandable and reliable information on vaccines and vaccinations. From there, users can easily access the Rokotustieto.fi service for more details on the issue," says Topi Hanhela, Director, Customer Relations & Business Development of the Pharmaceutical Information Centre.
